If you are a motorcycle enthusiast or if you have been injured in a motorcycle crash, our motorcycle accident attorneys share your beliefs and stand by you. We believe that all motorists, including motorcycle riders, should be able to travel with an expectation that other drivers will not put them in harm’s way. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
While most people may assume that driver error is the most common cause of motorcycle accidents, the most common cause of motorcycle accidents is other drivers. Drivers who fail to yield the right of way by turning left in front of a motorcycle or drivers who cut in front of a motorcycle are two of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents. Road debris and road conditions are another common cause of motorcycle accidents. Regardless of the cause of a motorcycle accident, the risk of severe injury is always high due to the lack of protection a motorcycle offers the rider.
When another vehicle collides with a motorcycle, the motorcyclist takes the full impact of the collision unlike a passenger in a vehicle. The impact typically throws the rider from the motorcycle causing even more injury from the impact with the road or other immovable objects. Broken bones, traumatic brain injury (TBI), internal bleeding, organ damage, paralysis, amputation, scarring, and disfigurement are common injuries in motorcycle accidents. Therefore, accident claims tend to be quite substantial and insurance companies fight aggressively against motorcyclists. They try to blame the rider for the accident.
